Week 7

Recorded: The new the Civil Wars cover album is four silences of heaven and takes the award for the musical highlight. The Glitch Mob wore off me and Daley is my fave album of the week; a sweet soulful Disclosure find. And even so not a terrible week, with albums by Michael Feinstein and Cheatahs bringing up the rear.

Live: Kings Of Leon were better than I expected, but then again I didn’t expect much, Gary Clark Jr was worse than I expected but then the sound was as low as the lights, and the Queers was neither.

rock nyc: We bid a sad farewell at Donna McElroy’s memorial service Saturday afternoon, where she was remembered with affection from friends and family and a weeping Joseph McElroy who also managed to bring smiles to our faces.

Weather: Snow and cold when it wasn’t snowing and colding.

Local: Bill de Blasio better remember politics 101, it is the small things that upset constituents. Like opening the schools in the middle of a blizzard. He can get away with raising taxes but he can’t get away with making New Yorkers feel like bad parents.

Sports: Derek Jeter retiring at the end of this season. I remember seeing his very first game in the majors and noticing him and, as a season ticket holder from 1999 – 2001, I watched him play in some of the most thrilling games I’ve ever seen in any game. Greatest moment? Wow, so many, but the lead off home room in game four of the 2000 World series, killing all of the Mets  momentum. By the way, the price on my Game Five ticket? $110. Enjoy it again here.
